Montreal Alouettes betting lines explained
Below is a typical example of Canadian Football League game lines at PointsBet Sportsbook or on the BetRivers Sportsbook app:
|Montreal Alouettes||+1.5 (-110)||+135||Over 60.5 (-110)|
|Winnipeg Blue Bombers||-1.5 (-110)||-155||Under 60.5 (-110)|
Here, the spread indicates the Alouettes are 1.5-point underdogs against Winnipeg. That means Montreal has to win outright, or lose by just one point, for Alouettes spread bets to pay off. If that happens, the odds dictate they’ll pay off at a rate of $100, plus your bet back, for every $110 bet. Of course, you can also bet on Winnipeg winning by two or more. Similar odds also mean these bets will pay off at a rate of $100, plus your bet back, for every $110 bet if the Blue Bombers cover.
The Montreal Alouettes moneyline has the team as +135 underdogs. That means if the Alouettes win, moneyline bets on the team will pay off at a rate of $135, plus your bet back, for every $100 bet. Of course, you can also bet on Winnipeg to win as -155 favourites. This will pay off at a rate of $100, plus your bet back, for every $155 bet, when the Bombers are victorious.
Finally, you can bet that the total combined score will go over or under 60.5 points. That half a point in the line means there cannot be a push. The over and under each payout at a rate of $100, plus your bet back, for every $110 bet. The over pays on 61 or more points and the under on 60 or fewer.
Montreal Alouettes prop bets
You can also bet on team and player performance and stats through prop markets. These bets are usually over/under-style, like totals lines or yes/no questions. They often surround statistics and accomplishments in a game, and all bets are booked at the currently posted odds.
Bet on things like a QB’s total passing yards, whether a player will score a TD in the game or receiving yard totals for a player or a team. If it’s a tracked stat, chances are you can place a prop bet on it here.
Betting on Alouettes futures
Through futures markets, you can also bet on the Alouettes winning a certain number of games, making the playoffs, winning the East or even the Grey Cup. The sportsbook betting odds are available all year round. Just remember to get your bets down early, because those odds will shrink significantly when the Alouettes are close to accomplishing any of these goals.

Brief Montreal Alouettes history
The Montreal Alouettes were founded in 1946. The original team operated until 1982 and won four Grey Cups. The team rebranded immediately under new ownership and played four seasons as the Montreal Concordes. They became the Alouettes again in 1986 but folded again a year later and were out of the CFL for nine seasons.
Then, the Baltimore Stallions moved most of the team to Montreal after folding in 1996 and became the latest incarnation of the Alouettes franchise. The CFL considers every Montreal team part of one single Alouettes franchise, which is why the three Grey Cups the team won in the 2000s now give the franchise a total of seven. The 2000s Alouettes teams were dominant behind the play of running back Mike Pringle, who became the CFL career leader in rushing yards, and QB Anthony Calvillo, who became the CFL career leader in passing yards.
The Alouettes are now owned by Crawford Steel exec Gary Stern. Stern and his father-in-law (the late Sid Spiegel) took over the team in 2020, buying it from the CFL, who took over for US businessman Robert Wetenhall in 2019.
